Wordle Users Complain 'Game Is More Difficult Now' After Struggling With Today's Word

Wordle users have complained that the game is “more difficult now” after struggling with today’s word.

Players of the daily word game, which was recently taken over by The New York Times, have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the “tough” installment on 18th February 2022, which saw many players decoding wordle 244 on the fifth or sixth try. 

Matthew took to the social media platform to explain: “Definitely think more difficult now than it used to be with either obscure words or words with multiple options.”


Meanwhile, another player wrote: “These are DEFINITELY more difficult. Phew,” explaining how they were relieved to guess the word on the last try.

Tracy explained how today’s installment was a “tough one for me today”. 

“Is it me or are they trickier now?,” another gamer asked.


Blair took to the social media platform to write: “What the f*** is todays wordle ive been stuck for like 30 mins there r zero words w these letters istg [sic]”. 

Meanwhile, other users have expressed their thoughts about the publication buying out the game, with one user writing: “NYT has def made it more difficult.”

Amy had a similar idea, writing: “Yet again not even a hard word but I’m gonna hate on NYT regardless.”

The difficulty fans faced comes after users previously branded 17th February 2022’s word as “worst day of my life” after many players failed to correctly guess 243 in under six tries.


The latest Wordle reaction comes around a week after the game was taken over by The New York Times after the original creator, Josh Wardle, sold the game for a currently unknown seven-figure amount.
